Currently, I have work from the Memory and Identity Project in an exhibition at Gallery 110, in Seattle. Outside Looking In was curated by George Brandt. Three images about the inner urban world are in a show at Martyr Sauce, Seattle, WA until June 30, 2015. This exhibition called, The No Mountain Exhibition was curated by photographer Shannon McClatchey and Tariqa Waters, Director of this gallery. Six images are part of the exhibition, Environmental Art, curated by June Sekiguchi, at the Ida Culver House (Broadview) in Seattle, WA. This exhibition opens May 18th. From May 30th to June 27th, three images will be part of the exhibition, This Is Who We Are at the Clarridge Gallery, Bellevue, WA. This exhibition is curated by the photographer, David Koronthaly.
For many months, I have been working with David Traylor, a sculptor, painter and landscape architect, to wrap up a 5 year collaboration looking at the meaning of “place” from an architectural, cultural, economic and social point of view. This latest project is about one street, Union Street in Seattle, from Elliott Bay at its western border to Lake Washington on its east side. This street has always brought back memories of other places I have lived because of its artistic richness, community-centered neighborhoods, activism and diversity.
David and I have been walking the neighborhoods from the commercial downtown to the elegant residential small town area of Madrona crossing shifting landscapes, boundaries in between neighborhoods that represent diverse populations and economic patterns from poor to middle-class. This fascinating journey
has brought us in contact with artists, developers, small business people and residents who care deeply about their street. We are in the process of making photo sketches and/or drawings, mock-ups as we begin to get ready for the final 3 months of creating the actual exhibition to be seen at Gallery 110 in the Tashiro-Kaplan Arts Complex in Seattle this September. IT IS NOW SEPTEMBER AND UNFOLDING IS OPEN. THE EXHIBITION INCLUDES A 24 FOOT BOOK OF DRAWINGS AND PHOTOGRAPHS ON 12 INCH X 12′ INCH PANELS. 17″ X 22″ PHOTOGRAPHS IN COLOR AND BLACK AND WHITE AUGMENT THE BOOK.
